Rather than share theories of how freelance hunting can work for you on travel hunts or on local lands you have limited information about…I thought I’d give you a real life example – the proof is always in the pudding (who knows what that means…I don’t think I’d eat that pudding??) Anyway.
In this final episode of the three-part DIY Hunting Strategy series I’ll share with you on the map how I used freelance hunting to fill my tag in Iowa, and walk you through my thought process and decision making during the hunt. The parcel I was hunting is a little more than 9,000 acres. I did do a two-day scout in March prior to the season. But abandoned the areas I had scouted for a piece of public I had never walked on until I hunted it for the first time.
There were ups and downs…but ultimately my persistence paid off!
